The EVO Championship Series: Powered by Yaris is here! You asked for it, you got it: EVO is coming to the wild, wild west! Get off the couch and get in on the action at this official qualifier for the world’s most exciting videogame championships. You can complete your registration at the event, but you can save some dough by registering in advance.


EVO 2007 features the biggest prizes, the best players, and the most freeplay ever! Bring the crew, rep your stuff, and support the scene. We’ll have lots of machines available in the Bring-Your-Own-Console lounge, and they’re all open to anyone that turns out. Think you’ve got the skills to score a hole-in-one in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour? Then step up to the tricked-out Toyota Yaris on-site to try your luck at the “Yaris 10K+ Powershot” and prove it – you could walk away with $10,800 bucks without even breaking a sweat. You either heard about the competition mayhem in Austin or saw it first- hand, and you can bet the east coast is gonna even more insane. So get over to San Diego and compete for your chance to qualify straight into the semi-final bracket at the EVO’s Las Vegas World Finals.

Game Tournaments
Of course, the main attraction at Evo are the eight game tournaments that run throughout the weekend. This is your shot to compete against the best in the east for prizes and a free ride into the semi-final round at the Evo World Finals.

Player Cap
Due to the event being free to all, we must limit the player base for each tournament to 128. This is to prevent the tournament running long, and to make sure everyone can get home on time. Please register early to secure your spot for Evo West.

World Finals Qualifying
The top 8 finishers in each tournament at Evo West win automatic placement into the semi-final bracket at the world finals, completely bypassing pool play.

Gaming Lounge
If tournaments aren’t your thing, there’s also our BYOC (bring your own console) lounge, where you can socialize with other gaming fanatics and play any game you like. It’s just like your couch at home, multiplied by a few hundred.
